A Daily Devotional
Every Day Is A Gift
One Catholic Book:
True Devotion To Mary *
by St. Louis de Montfort
One Work of Fiction:
Tales From Shakespeare* # @
by Charles and Mary Lamb
I found this book in the public library
when I was in the third grade, and, most
fortunately, decided to borrow it.
After I read it, I went on to read a few of
Shakespeare’s plays. I admit I needed a
dictionary, but I ended up with a vivid love
for Shakespeare, and for dictionaries.
This book is faithful to the original works,
unlike Thomas Bowdler’s infamous, nefarious
expurgated edition of the plays.
I wish somebody could have sung him the opening lines of this song!
One Jewish Book:
Tradition In A Rootless World ^
by Lynn Davidman
One Work Of Nonfiction:
A Study Of Nineteenth Century Evangelical Writing For Children
by Margaret Nancy Cutt
One Play/Collection Of Plays:
Modern Monologues for Young People # ^ @
by John Murray
My reading always includes at least:
One book I’ve never read before
One children’s/YA book.
A book can fit into more than one category.
For example, Chaim Potok’s “The Chosen” is both a Jewish book,
and a work of fiction.
I also read several picture books a week,
and an occasional comic book, graphic novel, or collection of strips/panels
